Allan Banks

Director / Los Angeles/Riverside

Background

Mr. Allan Banks has been involved in the Construction, Power, Heavy Engineering, and Oil and Gas industries for over 20 years. During that time, he has been engaged by government and non-government on projects globally. His talents have taken him around the world working on mega-projects, such as what was scheduled to be the world’s first kilometre high building, the Palm Jumeirah – a reclaimed island in the shape of a palm in the Gulf of Arabia, the construction and gathering of LNG facilities and new chemical plants. Mr. Banks was previously an independent adjudicator, a form of rapid dispute resolution whereby the adjudicator determines the value of a payment application – this requires the vetting of construction costs in the payment period. He has been appointed and cross-examined as an expert witness for construction costs, delays, disruption, and schedule in court and arbitration several times.
